Press releases

To publicize APSU, the Office of Public Relations, Marketing and Printing Services works with faculty, students and staff to develop press releases that highlight interesting and newsworthy people and information. These press releases are sent to area news media. 

Most press releases relate to one of these areas:

 If you have a story idea or news item to share, please contact Colin Harris, communication specialist, at 221-7868 or email harriscj@apsu.edu, or Charles Booth, assistant director of communication, at 221-7597 or email boothcw@apsu.edu for assistance. 

Areas of coverage:

Charles Booth, boothcw@apsu.edu, ext. 7597

Colin Harris, harriscj@apsu.edu, ext. 7868

To publicize an event, submit details at least four weeks before the event. We often publicize events regionally as well as locally, and many newspapers in this area publish weekly, which means we have to prepare information ahead of time in order to meet their publication deadlines.

You may request specific publications and distribution dates for publicity about your event, but we cannot guarantee that it will run on specified dates in specified publications. Unlike paid advertising, the news releases and photos we send on a regular basis are free services available to the media to use as they need. We cannot guarantee that any press releases we prepare and distribute will be printed or broadcast.
